    My suggestion would be get swimming lessons first before you try and go deeper with a hookah and I'm not being a smart aleck I say this because you could step off a ledge or something and lose your mask and knowing how to swim would save your life.

    You must learn to swim first....thats a must !! Not really optional. Please, please, learn to swim first !! You most certainly will get into life threatening situations with a hookah if you don't know how to swim. They are dangerous for people who have years of swimming experience, and even the most basic mistakes can kill you quickly !! Please please get the swimming lessons....you will enjoy them and it really is life changing when you learn to swim....then you can learn snorkeling, and the ins and outs, and rules of scuba/compressed air !! Learning to swim first will give you the best chance of success, .....or maybe just survival !!

    if you can't swim stay the f outta the water....or as others suggested learn to swim, learn the basics of snorkeling/scuba, and learn procedures to practice for if something goes wrong. Otherwise you are just asking to drown.

    They are correct. It does not take long to learn how to swim. And sometimes even experienced swimmers and divers drown, a lot of times because they did something, well, frankly, stupid like go into a cave. A couple years ago I was detecting a beach and a guy was out in 3' water detecting for rings and such. As I was watching he disappeared! A storm had dug a huge hole in the sand and down he went in it, he bobbed back up and swam back to shore.

    Lessons in the pool would be a great start IMF2020. If you do it right now during the middle of summer you'll really enjoy it !! Nice and cooling the water right now !! You would pay a minimal fee and learn some techniques with an instructor, and id bet very shortly you would be gaing some real water skills. How fast you could get to a hookah/scuba level depends on the individuals skills and learning rate but most could get proficient relatively quickly....learn to swim now, and shoot for next summer to try a hookah with an experienced friend/instructor....a good goal to shoot for !!

    Follow the advice! Being native to Florida, learning to swim was just a natural thing. I was swimming before I could walk. I know not everyone is from an area with many sources of water and maybe it's not a big thing to them but listen to yourself, you want to use an underwater rig that will be putting you in a place where you don't presently have the skills to be. Be safe, learn to swim..

    Blak bart am getting that hookan is dangerous is it more dangerous then using tanks underwater ..My dad laughing at me he said that with the many diving deaths they all knew how to swim none of them had safety lines .. My dad said knowing how to swim didn't save his life when he was trapped in a field of garbage 6 miles from land in 300 feet of water ..Do u realize 80% of the people here don't know how to swim even some fisherman just look at the numbers when ship sink here +80% die ..Should i use tanks are they a safer way we only talking 10" of water over my head ..These divers i figure are young and dumb all full of stupid ideas and i don't want to be one of them ...Thank u all for the info i better learn more first UXB's then this treasure hunting is a crazy hobby

    Tanks safer ? ? ?

    Um... No.

    They are not any safer... both tanks and air lines have "pitfalls"..

    And um... one more thing... i dont think you meant 300 feet of water... was it 30 ?
